    Angry Writing to a column in a text file

    Can anyone help!!!!!!!!!!
    I am writing a series of conditions to a text file which contains numerous columns.

    One of the conditions is to print an X or a particular value which I have declared in the program. How can I get the program to print an X or a value to a particular column in the text document which , will then allow each of the other 250 rows of that column to be entered with an X or a particular value.

    Normal Text does not have such formatting. You could simulate it with structures. Some columns for the data, Other columns between them to act as buffers.

    Slightly tedious though.......
